VS.NET Randomly Deletes Referenced Assemblies

Bob
I have an application that builds to the same directory that contains outside
references and it seems to be very buggy.

Random outside assemblies (referenced by projects in the solution) get
deleted once in a while for no reason at all. This usually seems to happen
during build or deploy (not sure which). One time it wiped out the entire
directory.

This latest time it happened I added a new project to the solution...
deleted it (no changes or added references to the project) and it deleted
several class libraries and removed references in other projects in the
solution to those class libraries.

Is there a workaround for this behavior? It is annoying to have to
rebuild/restore assemblies and fix my project over and over again after
VS.NET deletes stuff.

I'm not sure when exactly this happens but I've noticed this at times when a
class' interface changes... thus theoretically breaking other components that
rely on it. This is especially true with "designed" classes (controls and
"components") as it prevents the IDE from serializing their properties when
saving forms that contain them.

Tweaking your Build Order should fix the problem.
